    I know I'm a bit late but...
    have you only created one texture? because I think you need 6 for up,down,left,right,front,back
    so the name of the textures should be:
    sky_name_01bk = back
    sky_name_01dn = down
    sky_name_01ft = front
    sky_name_01lf = left
    sky_name_01rt = right
    sky_name_01up = you can guess this one ;D
